With three weeks to go until Election Day, the Democratic candidates for New York City mayor squared off in their second-to-last debate televised live from Town Hall.
Topics ranged Wednesday from health care and hospital closures to income inequality, emergency services and monitoring the police department.
In a testy cross-examination round, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and former comptroller Bill Thompson traded exchanges over monitoring the police department, term limits and the accuracy of rival ads.
Polls show a near dead-heat among the three.
Ex-congressman Anthony Weiner, whose early support collapsed after his latest sexting scandal, is in fourth. He is trailed by Comptroller John Liu.
